If there was one thing to be thankful for, when it came to Anael's current circumstances, it was that they had been allowing him to be much more present for Alcuin than he otherwise would have been. He tended to lose track of time in Heaven, immersed in his duties, and did not always realise how much time passed between his earthly visits.

This was obviously no issue, and he had called on Alcuin regularly since Hannibal's death. If nothing else, focusing on the young man was a welcome distraction from his forced stay on Earth, and the demonic brand on his skin. A distraction he embraced wholeheartedly, especially in the presence of someone who did not know of his nature.

Today would be no different, never mind Crowley's revelations. They changed nothing, only gave his magical friends more to work on. So that afternoon, he composed himself, then rang his friend's bell at the time they had agreed upon.

When Alcuin opened the door, his face lit up with pleasure just at seeing Hani. It had been months since Hannibal's death, but Alcuin still felt... messed up. Occasionally even self destructive. He'd go to clubs, have anonymous sex with random men and then mostly feel terrible afterwards.

But Hani... he made Alcuin feel like everything might be okay after all. He made Alcuin feel like he was worthy. And Alcuin... he felt like he could love again.

"Come in, Hani," he said brightly, and took his hand.

"Better now that you're here," Alcuin said, smiling at him, and then leaned in to kiss him softly.

It had not gone unnoticed to Alcuin that Hani had been around more recently. Alcuin had always assumed that he traveled for work, but lately... he saw him a couple of times a week. And when he was with Hani was when he felt best.

"I've nearly finished writing a paper," he said, leading him inside, the couch. "I'm graduating at the end of the semester, you know." This made him sad, in a way, because he knew how proud Hannibal would have been of him. "But I've no idea what I'm doing after. I could be a man of leisure for a bit I suppose."

"I... don't know," Alcuin admitted. "I suppose I need to think more about what would make me happy." He had always rather counted on Hannibal to help him figure it out, what he should do next. "Maybe I'll volunteer for a while. I'd like to help people... victims."

Alcuin waited for Hani to sit down and then slid onto the couch beside him, close enough that they were touching. "I think so," he said. "I've still been... I mean, I'm still not completely in a good place, but I think I'm getting better."

He put a hand on Hani's arm. "I hope you know that you've been a big part of that. Especially lately, I... I just really appreciate having you in my life. You make me feel like there is more beyond what I've been feeling."

Alcuin put his hand over Hani's, and twined their fingers together.

"And you've been so... so sweet, so respectful."

He hadn't known for sure that he would initiate this conversation today. But he just couldn't hold it in anymore.

"But you've made me feel... like I could have something good again." And he lifted their hands to his mouth and kissed Hani's fingers.

That was not exactly the reaction Alcuin had been expecting, when he thought he'd been confessing something. He was, in fact, at the wee beginnings of a seduction.

So he seemed a bit off balance when he said, "Well - yes, I suppose so. Eric."

Alcuin blinked, looking genuinely surprised.

"He has protected me," he said. "He cares about me."

"I do... I do feel things for him," Alcuin admitted. "But not - not what I feel for you, Hani." And he brought a hand lightly to the man's face, touching his cheek.

Alcuin smiled, seeming almost relieved by these words.

"I do love you," he said quietly, and then leaned in to kiss him, soft, but lingering, and full of emotion.

Alcuin kissed him back, with a touch more heat, and then pulled away, slightly breathless. "Let me show you, Hani... come to bed with me." They had never been together alone, just the time that Alcuin had joined him and Robin. And he wanted it so much, felt like he had waited so long.

"I - oh..." Alcuin was entirely taken by surprise. He wanted to ask why... or at least, whether it was just him or in general. But he couldn't seem to bring himself to say anything. Though hoped that the disappointment and slight hurt, even, did not show on his face. "Okay."

Alcuin could tell how upset Hani was, which did not lessen his confusion at all but at least made him feel slightly less rejected.

"You... can talk to me about it," said Alcuin, "if you want to. But you don't have to. I don't want to make you uncomfortable. I just... I can't help how I feel about you."
